Marlowe Sand grew up on an isolated farm in Britain where she enjoyed wandering the Jurassic Coast searching for fossils. Within two years of meeting Andrew Cohen, she left her husband, job, and country. She was his student for fifteen years, following him to California and then to Massachusetts—all the while raising her children. Marlowe currently lives in New England, where she works as a psychotherapist supporting children with special needs. She enjoys hiking with her dog Dragon and cooking Indian dishes. Yoga and gardening are part of her contemplative life. A Promise of Perfection is her first book. Marlowe Sand is a nom de plume.
